We teach the whole subject of art so you can relax. Featuring art instruction, art history, and art technique in a homeschool art program that encourages creative participation.
With ARTistic Pursuits, you leave the lesson planning to us and you won't have to wonder if you've covered the right topics. We target each age level to give your children lessons that fit their needs as growing artists and expand their visual experiences. As you relax and rely on the text to teach art, your child will:
- develop observation skills that are vital to becoming proficient in the fine arts
- learn creative thinking skills
- produce artworks that are uniquely their own, not a copy-by-following example, but one-of-a-kind creations.
As your child applies the concepts presented in each lesson of these award winning books, your child is
- wholly engaged
- participating in the mindset of an artist
Confident moms trust ARTistic Pursuits for art education.
Give a child the opportunity to express ideas in pictures and you give that child a voice.
No one would argue with the idea that we learn by imitating, by watching and doing with our own hands. That is where most other art instruction stops, so parents are lead to believe that an art teacher is needed for our children to imitate. But art is far more than imitation; it is a language that allows the doers, our children, to speak for themselves and to express their own ideas and interests through pictures.
Art gives our children a voice.
Even very young children can use that voice by showing and sharing with others what they see and think about the world around them. By teaching art purposefully, we expand their awareness of their surroundings, of nature, and of the people they share the planet with: their friends and family.
